Thanks for the picture and sizes posted. Yeah, that's what happened with mine it seems. The back side of the mount didn't look wallowed out; it still looked to be in good condition - but the front definately is, yet both will easily accept a 1/2in bolt slid through them. And I have no way of accurately boring out the trackbar bushing sleeve, so I contacted KOR and they are sending out a larger sleeve instead. That was nice of them. At 1/2 inch there is absolutely No play at all between the bolt or a 1/2 in sleeve so that should eliminate some front end play that could lead to DW. And that's what this is all about - taking the time to nitpick at everything front and rear to bring the suspension back to factory riding condition, but with a 3in lift. The largest improvement will be fixing this trackbar issue, and replacing the entire rear A-Arm assembly.
Ha, I had to laugh at myself. I've had a metal-to-metal scraping sound forever under my WJ and couldn't find what was causing it. While going through all this suspension stuff I stumbled upon it. See, in that pic below, how your drag link bends upward then back to the right? Well, I had that side installed on the passenger side instead, which had the drag link too close and scraping against the sway bar link at its base. Doh!
